IGRA (Israel Genealogy Research Association) has posted a new article
on its website.

The article-" A Funny Thing Happened to Me on the Way to the Forum"-
by Chanan Rapaport has been translated into English. The English
version is now available.

Having always believed that his family name came >from Galicia, Chanan
was challenged with new information that his family name could have
come >from Spain or Portugal. The story of the history of names is
fascinating and will give us all food for thought.

Dr. Chanan Rapaport holds a doctorate in Clinical Psychology. He is
the Director General of the The Center for the Study of the Rapaport
Family founded in 1990. Since the death of the famous genealogist,
Dr. Paul Jacobi, he serves as the executor of his scientific estate.

for Jewish Genealogy and the Paul Jacobi Center at the Jewish National
Library in Jerusalem.

Re: Meaning of names Bronislava, Iona and Ioinya and Yakov #general

Judith Singer
 

The name Iona is the same as Yona; initial Is and Ys are interchangeable in Russian
transliterations. Yona is a Biblical name, Kings II 14:25. I have never seen the
spelling Ioinya but it is probably a variation, nickname, or diminutive of Iona.
Our ancestors were casual about spelling and almost endlessly creative in their use
of nicknames. Yakov is one of the versions of the Hebrew name we usually see in the
form of Jacob; its diminutive is usually Yankel (or Jankel or Iankel). Yosif is a
separate name. Bronislava is a name of Slavic origin, more often found in what was
then Czechoslovakia but also used in Russia. It may have been adopted
by assimilationist Jews who based it on the Jewish name Broniya, >from the Yiddish
for "brown".

Re: Beth David - Elmont Cemetery, NY: Gravestone Photography Request --- THANKS!!! #general

Meron Lavie
 

Hi all,

At the beginning of this month, I posted this request, asking if there was
anyone who could photograph a family plot at the Beth David Cemetery.
Several people replied with various suggestions how I could get the
pictures, and I wish to thank them for their responses.

However, I would like to give a special thanks to Dmitry Olegovich
Nikelshpur, who photographed all the headstones in the family plot. His
pictures (which included the "patriarch"'s Hebrew patronym) finally proved
what I had long suspected - that he and my great-grandfather were brothers,
who had ceased all contact between them for some unknown reason. I am now in
contact with his descendants.

Regards,
Meron LAVIE
